I've been tossing around the idea of opening a small shop in the little town that we call home now. I have all this jewelry that my sister has painstakingly put together and it is original and beautiful and lovely and inexpensive. I used to sell it in California and while it didn't make my sister or myself millionaires - it sold well and I didn't have to do all the work.
I'm bored. I need more to do. The little job I do Monday through Friday has turned into that, a little job and I find that I need more to do - although I'm not willing to get a job that doesn't allow me to pick my kids up from school, at least not yet. I know that working for yourself ends up being so many more hours than you plan on and that it takes a long time to turn a profit and that in a small town like Pittsboro you are totally dependent on tourists and tourist season but I have spent the last 8 months tossing around the idea of opening my own shop.
Having never gone into business for myself I know that besides being a writer, it is the only other thing I haven't done that I would like to try. And I know what I would sell in the store besides jewelry - shoes.
